Re: Mobile Phone Mount

:roll: I think I need one of these mounts so I can keep my phone cool - it's getting quite warm in here with all the bickering.

Re: dash cams

Just upgraded my dash cam to a Nextbase 522GW and rear view camera. Quality is very good from both cameras and the rear does work well without the problem of wiring in. The only negative are: The rear view camera adds width to the installation and it is quite tight getting it into the best position ...

Re: premium v regular unleaded

From what I see from various posts it can vary dramatically. Some people can't seem to get more that 40mpg, some over 50mpg.
It will obviously depend alot on how you drive the car and the nature of the roads and terrain in your locale.

Re: Hello and Advice

Yes, go for the Sports Nav petrol. HUD is great, and better on the newer models.

Re: premium v regular unleaded

I managed 495 miles, with 12 left on the range, but it only took 42 litres

Disappointed as I wanted to crack the 500 mile range....
That is really good going. I haven't got as near to the 500 mark as you. I'll have up my game 😀

Re: Fuel notification

I find that unless you're putting in a reasonable quantity of fuel the gauge and range don't change immediately. I've had this mostly on courtesey cars which you invariably only want to but in a few litres before returning. And eveyone of them (which were not Mazdas) did not register the fuel. Did t...

Re: Petrol pump clicking off

Just filled up today. Tank was empty - showing range left as zero. Managed to get 43.83 litres in. So according to the car specification I still had 4 litres (not quite a gallon) in the tank. Enough for 40 miles but I wouldn't like to push it. I'd completed 452 miles.

Re: tank fuel pump failure

I also had a problem back in the 80's with a Porsche 924. There was a non-return value in the fuel line that keep the fuel injection system pressurised. This failed so the vehicle would take an age to start after stopping with the engine was warmed up.
